***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***


Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    Surprised he's rolling with a somewhat "stock" HZRDOUS Smoke in his driver. He's one of the best drivers of the golf ball, and you would think he would want something with a little lower launch and a bit less spin. Love Hovland's swing!

    Does tour v come in a 120-X? I thought X was usually 130 weight?

    I thought he had gone iBlade in long irons, i201 short irons - then to iBlade throughout the bag. While counter intuitive, thought I read he liked the launch window that split provided.

    Not what I am seeing, however.

    Pretty sure that the 120X is the original retail offering. Tour V 130X used to be tour only at some point. Not sure how the situation is currently.

    Looks like he got custom grinding on all his wedges... would be interested to know why. Might have wanted a little bit less bounce or a bit more relief around the heel?

    Fantastic putter - PLD Piper head with a raw finish.

    I wonder if Ping will spring a surprise and release some of these tour issue models to the general public...?

    The PING site claims his 50 degree has the half-moon grind and the 60 degree (and maybe 56?) has the wide half-moon/extra heel/rolled leading edge grinds. Would love to hear him and the PING tour fitting staff discuss the process for selecting all the grinds, would be quite enlightening.

    He bounced back and forth a couple times after turning pro. Iblades through the bag, 210 through the bag, 210 short/iblade long, iblade short/210 long. I also clicked here to see which set up he ended up with.

    Tour V X is 120 but then there are Tour Models that are Stiffer and heavier one is a 125g thats marked S+ (Stiffer than the retail 120X) and then there is a 130g X that is rebar, think close to X7
